Beginners' Courses

 Tuition in earlier days    

Before you can join this, or any other Archery GB affiliated club, you will need to attend a recognised beginners' course.

The club usually runs two beginners' courses each year. These take place over 6 weeks in the gym at Loreto College in St Albans.  They are on Saturdays from 4 - 6pm. The cost is £75. 

We will usually accept juniors from the age of eight (if they are mature enough to take instruction). For children under 14 years old, a parent/guardian or responsible adult designated by the parent/guardian must be present at all sessions.  Seniors and juniors are taught together.


All necessary equipment is provided by the club.  If you subsequently join Abbey Bowmen we have a free equipment hire scheme which covers the first couple of month's of your membership.  After this you will be explected to buy your own equipment, but coaches will give you advice on this.

Have a go at the Archery Big Weekend, Sunday 17th June to try the sport out.  See poster for details

Our next course will be in November/December 2018

 To join the interest list for this or future courses

 please send your name, email address and a phone no. 

(plus age if under 18) via our contact form.  

You may want to try other clubs or archery shops if you do not want to wait until then.

(Do note that if you subsequently want to join Abbey you must have done a course with at least 4 sessions of tuition, not on one day or over one weekend).
